When you’re first learning to knit, it’s hard enough to figure out the knit stitch. And then you have to learn the purl stitch. Whoa. Crazy little goober that it is.

But to combine the stitches and work ribbing…You have to remember when the yarn is in the front, when it’s in the back, when to work the knit stitch, when to work the purl stitch. Oh my gawddd… when does the craziness end?

I remember when I first learned to knit and that this particular thing (ribbing in general) just befuddled me.

So over the years I realized the super easy secret to perfect ribbing every time. It’s a DUH moment when you get it.

And ‘get it’ you WILL.

So have a watch and be amazed at how easy it really is to work ribbing, whether you’re working 1×1 ribbing, 2×2 ribbing, 2×3 or something else. Casting on an even number of stitches or an odd? Doesn’t matter. Same rule applies.
